Session: English Literature for New AP Teachers - Advanced Placement Summer Institute (Charleston)

Description:

Please Note: In order to complete your registration, you must enter your credit/debit card information or provide a purchase order number from your school or county. Your registration will not be complete without this information.

The Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institute is a subject-specific professional development opportunity. It provides teachers with the support and training needed to teach AP courses and to utilize AP teaching strategies. Teachers from West Virginia, as well as other states, come together at this institute to learn techniques and tactics for teaching. Participants also engage in discussion and exchange ideas and information with peers about AP courses and exams.

Topics that are often covered in AP Summer Institute sessions include:
· AP courses: goals, objectives, content, resources, bibliographies, and equipment
· The AP Examination: how it is developed and graded
· Syllabi, lesson plans, and assignments
· How to refresh and improve existing AP courses
· Recent changes in AP course descriptions
